for the urban shopper and to complement the city's character and the small store offers the product but more suited to these lifestyles. instead of 20-pound bags of dog food you will find smaller bags and treats to manage to carry around. this is the first store in san francisco and we are activating our first stand alone active wear store and part of our brand by champion so what does it mean for you? high end apparel without the high end prices and what better way to introduce this concept than here in america's most active community and a joy to join the mayors in san francisco and nakd in 2011 we two contributed $2 million to san francisco and have awarded several schools with grants for field trips and completed our first library make over in san francisco last week at sanchez college prep elementary about 2 miles from here. we support the united way and employee contributions. as you can see we believe strongly in giving back to the community. speaking of community i would like to introduce one of san francisco's most influential leaders. present at the groundbreaking of the tar
income market and that is exactly why we have an affordable sector in this city. when it comes it recreating redevelopment, that's a fallacy. it's about recognizing that redevelopment allowed a certain portion of money to be used for redevelopment. it's not about recreating redevelopment, in fact that's a closed chapter in history. lastly the idea we are reducing the mixed income housing is also a sort of fallacy. there is a purpose to providing an incentive for developers to do what's called mixed income housing, providing some of their units are affordable to mixed income households. most developers do not do that and this is an incentive for them to do it. this is providing a set of programs that are funded providing all the way for folks who were formerly homeless to folks who are middle income to be and stay in san francisco. >> any final comments, starchild. >> it sounds like peter is saying on one hand, well, no, it won't subsidize middle income people then he's saying there is a range all the way from middle income people all the way up to -- he doesn't say what the
have my numbers right? >> there are a number of reasons why hetch hetchy is such a benefit to the city, not the least of which is that it produces carbon free public power to the city of san francisco. one of my favorite lines mike just used is this measure is about consolidating from 8 reservoirs to 7. another way to say that is to say this is about draining one of them, the hetch hetchy valley. have other studies said this is feasible? sure, just like tearing down city hall or knocking down the golden gate bridge, that's possible but not feasible. we're not going to spend 3 billion dollars to tear down the hetch hetchy dam. let's not forget, we are also stewards for two dozen cities in the peninsula. over 2 million californians benefit from the foresight of our forefathers almost 100 years ago in building hetch hetchy. while the rest of the state is tying themselves up in knots trying to figure out where to get their water. not only did we have the type of water storage hetch hetchy provides, not only today but in the future, we are in a solid place. and to spend this kind of
. city college of san francisco has 9 campuses in the city and serves approximately 100,000 students each year. the state has reduced funding to ccsf by core academic courses, provide work force training, provide an education that prepares students for 4 year universities, keep city college libraries and student support services open, keep technology and instructional support up to date, and offset state budget cuts. i'm here with alyssa messer, an english teacher at city college of san francisco. she's the ppt of aft2121, the faculty union, and a proponent of proposition a. also joining us is starchild, a local activist with the libertarian party of san francisco and a former candidate for the san francisco school board. he's an opponent of the measure. thank you both for taking the time to be with us today. >> thank you. >> alyssa, i'd like to give you the opportunity it share the thoughts of your position. >> so proposition a is a temporary 8-year, $79 parcel tax on properties in san francisco. and that money would go directly to supporting city college of san francisco. city colleg

and keep us safe. i am running for supervisor to keep san francisco real. our city is a social, economic and political cross roads. in so many ways, the every-day people that keep this city special, the artists, the students, the young families, the seniors on fixed income, working people and every day people of all strides are having a harder and harder time surviving much less thriving in our city. one of the reasons is that our economic development policies are currently much too focused on the big business interest. we need to reorient our city's development policies to focus on the 80 percent of the economy which is our small businesses or mom and pop shops. san francisco needs to develop more affordable housing. the association of bay government says that they need 18,000 new units of housing and we are nowhere close to that. prop c, something that i encourage you to vote for, but let's go back to the ballot in the years to come and pass an affordable housing bond something that san francisco has not done in close to two decades. we need to improve our public schools in san francis
really before the m.t.a. and city realized they needed a complete streets bond. i believe a couple weeks ago, the m.t.a. kicked off community comprehensive planning and walking tours and all sorts of efforts to try to coordinate pedestrian count downs from union to market street. keep an eye out for further input on that. another one of the bicycle projects included in prop k allocation is the long awaited market and valencia street gap projects which deals with accommodating a left turn. i won't go into the details, but the good news is construction should start this month. a couple of the pedestrian safety projects in this district, the first one at tenderloin safe routes to school is a federal project just under a million dollars awarded to the m.t.a. you can see the description on the scope. we are waiting for m.t.a. schedule and the design funds were just obligated in june. this project should get going in full swing very soon. one project i will mention is a regional transportation for liveable grants cities for the alley ways, includes frees and crosswalks. it was originally award
is keeping them out because the city attorney says you can. in the task force case 11088, which ethics commission was found in violation of the ordinance, to date this commission has refused to comply and refused to hear the referal from sotf from ethics, of course what you produced is 134-page response trying to justify it which is a load of crap. why are you so afraid of having comments from the public be presented accurately in the official records of your meetings. why do you insist on placing the 150 word summaries in an alternative location, substituting in their proper place, in the minutes, your sensored version of those comments? and why have the members of the ethics commission advocated their responsibility to the director john saint croy in matters that go to the very heart of the open and honest operation. it is a real shame that a citizen of this city has to actually fight with boards and commissions who have taken an oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states and that of the state of california, who in some cases even have a chance to speak. and thi
ask, you know, with regard to the city officials all of the time, who where the situation is sensitive and we are all working for the city, and we have those kinds of concerns. i haven't heard anything that said why we in particular would be unable to deal on the merits related to a member of the staff. >> commissioner liu do you have any thoughts on this? >> well, i think that was a really helpful discussion, helpful from the city attorney's office to get the guidance we did. because i came in thinking, you know, if there is a way to transfer it to another adjudicatory body that might help with the perception issues, but if there is no mechanism of doing that and to be reminded that it is our ultimate responsibility as the san francisco ethics commission to adjudicate complaints before us, i don't really see, like commissioner studley was saying, any room to do otherwise and then the question of whether we try to seek an advisory opinion from another body is, you know, could be problematic in the sense that is it basically the same as the mechanism that we have laid out here? which is

a leather flight jacket to thank mr. lahood for the great gift to our great city. the new money that is going to be used here is going to create 1,000 new jobs before the end of the year with many more jobs to come after that. that is something to applaud. thank you again secretary lahood for that. this is one point 7 miles very similar to the length of the golden gate bridge when 75 years ago that was going to be built and little did we know what that bridge would bring to the economy of san francisco and marin and as we look ahead for 75 years it's interesting what this does for this region. you know the bay area has become the blue angels of science. we do lots of stunts, and we are very successful at doing those stunts and we do them at high speeds, and between this project and the project for cal train to electifiy it over the next seven years $3 billion is going to be spent regionally on transit here, and we can say thank you to the secretary of transportation and to the regional transit authorities who have create thursday opportunity for the transportation. >> >> that
's a perfect time right now to get away with absolutely anything in city hall. you've got the sunshine ordinance, quietly paid off and snoozing. not even paying attention. why, you could put al-qaeda out here on the transportation authority and you could probably get away with it. because you've got the whole system rapped up. eth ethics commission, brown act. whichever way you want to go, san franciscans, we're ramming this down your throat. why? it's not about democracy, it's about communism. we tell you as a dictatorship what we think is best for you regardless of what the people voted for. regardless of what is good for the city and its citizens. and if you as supervisors and members of public sit back and allow this type of absolute tyranny shows you have no backbone or discretion and you'ra complete moron. >> thank you. >> is there anybody member of the public that would like to speak seeing none? public comment is closed. my suggestion would be make for each item that you explain exactly what the recommendation from the committee was, whether approval, non-approval or no recomm
of not. one was, we brought out the coms people and said, play, we set up 3 points around the city and said play, make this stuff connect. see if we can talk to each other. we had the national guard above us in a helicopter, even though it was really foggy, they didn't see much, but they demonstrated proof of concept that they can connect the video feed. we learned there are limitations in things of band width and video feed that i'm not qualified to talk about, i'm strictly a push to talk guy. we know as a city when the earth moves, things fall, we get a lot of rubble. that's going to be one of our critical, critical things we have to do. we have to be able to move material and personnel and one of the ways we're going to be doing that is how do we actually get the debris off the road so we can put things back to work. so that was the command of control exercise. we had the marine corps, the navy, and the national guard all working with our department of public works figuring out how would they work together. we didn't give them a lot of coaching, we just kind of put them in
by the city. so today we are of course unveiling our promotional launch but getting here has been something on my mind. it's been one of those very solid topic that jen and i spent good time together. my office, where i call it inappropriately the man cave, but it is a place where i think we have had a chance to talk about the honest going relationship that the niners, the oldest professional sports franchise in the state of california, that's still here in the state of california. it is wonderful to have this opportunity. we have other ideas we can't talk about yet because they are not matured but this came to us fast. it was an opportunity we have rarely. but to be able to be invited by the national football league to submit a bid and build up a course of support is incredibly helpful to the city. i have been looking for those days where we celebrated just as enthusiastically those super bowl wins with joe montana, steve young and coming down market street. as we did with the giants a year and a half to two years ago. these were incredible inspirational opportunities we have, now hosting
. it is unfair for city members of the sunshine task force to have on-going conversations with the director of the ethics commission when mr. pilpal is doing that in these rooms, this type of conflict of interest that is built into the con lusion, between the different city agencies is off the hook. since 1999, willie brown issued orders to every one of his documents and commissions not to comply with sunshine. i have been doing immediate disclosure requests across the departments in san francisco, none of the department heads have done the form 700 certification required by law and the whole city is out of order. to quote al pacino and go giants. >> hi there, i am one of the two whistle blowers, and from my perspective what i am asking for is actually not confidential investigatory information, what we wanted to know about is whether there was an administrative memo during the time that the ethics commission sat on our case for six months while the two of us were driven out of laguna honda ordering the whistle blower to not concurrently investigate the case. and in theory, according to you
to call friends, and they continue to be treasures to san francisco, to our city, to our state, and to our nation. and i was so impressed yesterday that both of them intently sat here yesterday taking it all in. and it was the highlight really i think of the seminar to have the evening closing remarks capped off by former secretary of state george schultz. so, thank you very much, sir, for being here. (applause) >> it is a wonderful partnership that he shares with his wife who is chief of protocol for our city and our state, charlotte schultz. so, thank you very much. (applause) >> certainly this partnership couldn't take place without all of the heavy lifting and hard work done by the san francisco fleet week association. so, thank you to general myatt for your vision. this is your three of not only the celebration events, but what you spoke to earlier. also the executive director of the fleet week association lewis lubin. thank you very much.

been playing games in other countries for the sport. san francisco is an inter national city so we will probably have additional events that no one's thought of in terms of not only celebrating the 50ses but emphasizing inter national perspective on the sport of football. that is a key strength. like any franchise, they are looking for more market gain, this is where it will happen. >> we are going to ask rich to come up. if this group could stay and answer questions. but rich has a special way to throw this out. once again thank you to goodby silverstein for everything. >> i like that. my birthday it rained every day. snowed. what is football without -- >> wet weather for me. >> has to fit him just right. take that off.

coverage tonight as the storm approaches the mid-atlantic region. sarah sampson is in ocean city tonight, where residents could be on the front line of the storm. george is in the low-lying areas of fell's point as people are gathering sandbags. but let's go to our meteorologist who is tracking the storm. john, what's the latest? >> well, sandy is a hurricane, marginal, category one, with 75-mile-an-hour winds, a little better than 300 miles away from cape hatteras. here's what the weather looks like for us. we had the cold front to the west and all that moisture coming up from the south from sandy. but it's kind of held down to the extreme southeast virginia, the mouth of the chesapeake bay. we've had a very nice afternoon this afternoon so far. let's switch over to our main computer and here are the various tracks. we still got a variety of solutions, but most of them converge on new jersey. i want to kind of focus now, instead of having two or three of these little spinning symbols about where various models talk, the three main models, the european, the g.f.s. and the nam are coming
in terms of kind of our policy objective as well for the city. so, i just wanted to -- before this really -- i don't think it's going to -- it's booming to the extent that mobile foods was happening, but it is something -- we are starting to see more and more requests come in from wanting to operate a retail type of business. through this means. so, to get ahead of it and not to be reactive of it, we're working on this. we will also be meeting with some of the individuals in the industry as well. those -- to also make sure we get their perspective and understanding and if we do craft a permit, that it's crafted in a way that can support something, but not to the detriment of our neighborhood commercial districts and, you know, goods that are of questionable origin. so, we'll keep you -- yes. >> can you report back to us as you're getting these inquiries? it will be interesting for us to get a baseline on what types of businesses are looking to expand the mobile truck thing. just so we kind of get an idea what we're looking at. >> um-hm. so, i'll make sure that we -- we'll ask -- i'll ask
for public transportation here in the city and countiy of san francisco. we want to remind the prop k local sales tax is being used to improve the delivery of services to our residents. we're very proud of that, and i look forward to continuing the work with all of you on the commission. and again, we want to thank our staff for their tremendous work. with that, that closes my remarks. is there any member of the public that would like to speak on this? if so, please come forward. >> mr. chair, i have a few comments on what you said. on the two projects that you tried to give a little spin so that our representatives in congress as you say, have delivered this huge sums of money. but let me remind everybody that it's taxpayers money. let me talk about the central subway. all of y'all should know that phase one of that was the third street light rail where we expanded over 700 million. that has to be tweaked. as much as we have people talking about rosy terms, that system really doesn't work. so now we have phase two, which is 1.5 miles and expanding over a billion dollars. to be expect, over
city still have no motive in the brutal killing of two young children from a family with bay area ties. all day today mothers and nannies left flowers outside the family's apartment. the family's nanny stabbed to death their 2-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl then slit her own throat. she's in a medically induced coma. the children's mother found the bodies when she returned home. the father, kevin krim is a cnbc executive but also worked as a vice president at yahoo in in the bay area. neighbors are in shock. >> i have two young children myself. this hits close to home. unmanageable. >> nothing any of us can do. but our heart goose out to the mom and dad. >> investigators have no motive for the killings and hope to be able to interview the nanny soon. >>> in oakland help may be on the way. officers will be partnering with oakland police to patrol the streets. allie rasmus says some questions have to be answered. >> reporter: this partnership between oakland police and the chp comes to welcome news. in front of this building here behind me is where the city's 101st homicide happened ea

charter and all city ordinances? >> i mean, what you just were arguing one minute ago. and ber raiding my legal knowledge on the basis of that is how you accurately interpret the law. but you can proceed on whatever additional subtanive additional arguments that you have. >> the sunshine ordinance is quite clear. you cannot use that balancing test, any balancing test with 1040 or 6254.7 and,.13. you can't use balancing tests, not in san francisco. >> i believe somewhere along the lines, the ethics commission in their response which the sunshine ordinance task force rejected, indicated that the ethics commission, the ethics commission staff indicated and i believe so did the city controller, that they were withholding based on 6254 f. that did not apply either ethics, our ethics commission, or to the city controller's office. 6254 f, says that records of complaints are investigations conducted by or records of intelligence information or security procedures of the office of attorney general and the department of justice. and any state or local police agency or any investigate co
and the city controller's office regarding the complaint and the ethics commission file. and the closing memo authored by the ethics commission and we have been asking about the records kept by the controller's office and the answers that we are getting once they are in that file, they have a very heightened confidentiality standard. have we... so i am enclined to ask the same questions about the documents that are in the possession of the ethics commission. and for obvious reasons, i don't want to put the staff on the spot. but since miss herrick did not, so i guess... first question is could miss herrick see the ethics commission files? i understand that miss ludichu, am i saying that correct, did not... understands that the whistle blower's files at the controller's office would not be available. miss herrick, could you or did you review the ethics files and maybe you know the answer to that as well. >> i don't know the answer to that. it sounds like the answer to that is no but i will let miss herrick speak to it but i could answer your question more generally commissioner studley. i do n

and black everywhere in the city by the bay. good morning, i'm terry mcsweeney. before we get to the giants let's talk about the fantastic weather. here's lisa argen. >> good morning, terry. we are talking about the last weekend in october feeling more like summer because temperatures continue to warm under a ridge of high pressure. a live look outside from our roof camera. it's a beautiful start with clear conditions. maybe a patch or two of fog at the coast. and temperatures range from about 49 to 57. so we are warmer this morning and by this afternoon we will be in the mid-60s from half moon bay to about 80 today in concord. so plenty of 70s around the bay and by the evening hours still quite pleasant with lower 70s to the mid-60s. the forecast is going to last for the entirety of the weekend, but then subtle changes monday. we have rain back in the forecast just in time for the trick-or-treaters. terry. >> thanks very much. >> the giants face the tigers, game three of the world series tonight. this time in detroit. giants leading this series two games to none. giants fans may have the c
city, included. new york city, included. long island, as well. and then, we've got that rainfall because you heard a lot about it. at best, locally, some places could top out at a foot or more after this is all said and done. you see the heart of it, at 6 to 12 inches. and it extends back into the eastern great lakes, where you get anywhere from three, four, or even five inches of rain when this is all said and done. so, flooding is going to be a problem. coastal flooding a major issue. and there's snow. i'll have more on that coming up in a couple of minutes. for now, we'll go back to the studio. >> all right, ginger. we'll see you in a few minutes. thank you. >>> meantime, this extremely dangerous superstorm has the potential to shut down new york and other big cities up and down the east coast. emergency officials are scrambling to make sure preparations are in place. and abc's john schriffen has that part of the story from lower manhattan. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning. we are here in battery park city, in what's now being called zone "a." 375,000 residents ar
